There’s something comforting about the curvaceous forms of Hatashikki’s Trico series of containers. Playfully inspired by the shape of mushrooms, their rounded bases give them a softened aesthetic, while unvarnished lids highlight the natural beauty of wood grain. When closed, the flat tops can be a mini display tray for favorite trinkets. When open, the lids can be used as saucers for the bowl bases. It’s perfect for any kitchen counter, desk or even dresser.
This Trico Cloud lineup in muted grey is a limited-edition and will match any decor. Smooth to the touch and flawlessly woodturned, it showcases the extraordinary artisanal skills that lacquerware makers Hatashikki is renowned for.

Today, even for its contemporary lines, its items are still hand turned using vertically cut Japanese wood - a technique unique to Yamanaka lacquerware - which leaves them less prone to warping, shock resistant and with a striking grain pattern.
